Shine Your Light
For more than 80 years, East Tennessee Children's Hospital has touched
the lives of millions of children in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky and
beyond. From chronic illnesses to routine exams, we treat every visit
as an opportunity to shine our light.
Hospital visits can be stressful for children. Whether they've planned
to be at our door or not, families often feel anxious when faced with
illness. We've spent years practicing family-centered medicine - meaning
we don't just treat the patient, we treat the whole family. Children
heal faster when their parents and siblings are involved.
SHINE YOUR LIGHT WITH JAXSON
Jaxson is a remarkable little boy battling a rare genetic disorder. He
first came to Children’s Hospital through our Neonatal Intensive
Care Unit, and over the past four years, we have had the privilege to
engage and treat Jaxson at every step in his journey.
From complex stomach surgeries in our OR to a bumped head that landed him
in our ER, Jaxson has visited nearly every department at East Tennessee
Children’s Hospital. We have supported him at his most fragile,
and we have watched him grow into a strong, energetic and happy little
boy. When Jaxson comes to visit, his bright smile and bouncy personality
shine throughout the hospital.
In many ways, Jaxson is like every child we serve at East Tennessee Children’s
Hospital. For more than 80 years, Children’s Hospital has been the
organization families trust to treat their chronic illnesses, mend their
broken bones, run their routine lab tests – whatever it takes to
ensure the children in our region live to their fullest potential.
Now is the time to shine your light for children just like Jaxson, so they
can get the care they need close to home. Please consider making a donation

In the meantime, we invite you this season to once again shine your light
on the families we serve and to let them know they aren’t alone.
Children are special, and they deserve specialized care. We could not provide
our expert services without the support and generosity of donors in our
community. We are asking you, our neighbors, to help us raise critical
funds to support the programs and services that make an impact on our
community and beyond.
